Tools

Convertkit

Convertkit is an email marketing service. It’s designed for bloggers. I’ve been using it since 2015. Similar to other email marketing services they offer a free plan for those with fewer than 1,000 subscribers.

AppSumo

AppSumo is my go-to website for lifetime deals. Some of the best deals that show up repeatedly are DepositPhotos (stock photos) and ShortPixel (Image Compression).

Podia

Podia is what I use for Product hosting. When someone purchases your product, Podia is how they access the product. They offer a free 14 day trial so you can check it out. But they make delivering digital downloads, courses, and webinars super simple.

Tailwind

Tailwind is a great tool to be able to batch out Pinterest tasks. It lets you schedule pins months in advance. And if Pin Creation is something you don’t enjoy doing, they have Tailwind Create which makes generating beautiful pins quick and easy.

MissingLettr

Missinglettr is one of my favorite tools, it automates creating social media posts for new content. You just put in your URL and then it generates different posts to be published over a set period (I usually do 12 months) You can get 50% off your first 3 months using the link below (they also have a free plan)

ClickUp

ClickUp is my favorite Project Management software. I’ve tried Asana, Trello, and Airtable, but ClickUp really is the best. It’s easy to collaborate, create templated tasks and subtasks (like blog posts) and recurring tasks (like checking data every month), plus it’s FREE!
